The Dell S2817Q monitor uses an excellent IPS panel with minor drawbacks all of which can be fixed with some calibration from our custom profiles. The package contains the usual Office work, Design & Gaming and Health-Guard profiles, each of which will improve the overall image quality in certain aspects. You can read more about them and how to use them here. We also suggest reading our dedicated article regarding blue light emissions and PWM and how our custom Health-Guard profile reduces the Blue Light’s impact and eliminates the harmful PWM.
The Dell S2817Q offers a nice Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) TN with 72% color coverage (NTSC), decent maximum brightness (300 cd/m²), and standard contrast ratio (1000:1).

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.
Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.
Design and Gaming
This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.
THealth-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.
